    When I set out this morning the weather was cloudy. A perfect day to
    shoot decaying the old houses and barns, I planned to shoot. I saw quite
    a few candidates, but every time I too out the camera, the sun came out
    and there was too much contrast. So I went to the shore to shoot long
    exposure rocks in the water. You guessed it, the fog rolled in, reducing
    visibility to almost zero. Perfect for decay, but too much for the shore.
    Oh well, there will be another day.

    What I sometimes do when conditions are not right is to exaggerate the
    imperfections.



    I think I would have tried for a high contrast shot...maybe a silhouette.


    Just for example here are a few I took under poor lighting conditions,
    I made no to attempt to bring out the subjects' facial features:

    Nice work.
    I know, i know, But today I was just in the mood for decayed building
    shots. It seemed like a conspiracy.
    Well, tomorrow I am meeting someone at 4:00 AM. We are going for some
    sunrise shots.

    With the kind of luck you had today, better be sure the sun does not try
    to come up in the West tomorrow!

    Nice. Where is that? I have to assume Long Island, but didn't know it had
    formations like that.

    I believe you said you might visit Acadia this summer, and there are places
    there with similar colors. But you wern't there a day or two ago, so I'm
    guessing not.

    Bad guess. After the NECCC program we went to Ogonquit, Booth Bay, and
    today is our third day in Bar Harbor.

    Algae don't grow in water in noticeable concentrations unless it is
    loaded with nutrients.

    ;^) !!

    Martha and I got a huge laugh out of me being wrong about that one! But at
    least I claim credit for my reluctance to place the shot on Long Island!

    Enjoy the rest of your stay. It's really a beautiful place. And remember: For
    your sunset shot on Cadillac Mountain, consider setting up in the last
    overlook BEFORE the summit.
